Our Minecraft Best Seeds List features a bunch of newly found seeds to some good areas to start your next Minecraft world. We have cool seeds for every version of the game, including PE (Pocket Edition), PC, Java, Bedrock, and Xbox One editions! Seeds are a great way to get your adventure started in an exciting area. With the random nature of landscape creation in the game, it's nice to at least have some guarantee of what you are getting yourself into.
This list is updated for the Village and Pillage patch and the 1.14.4 version of the game!
What is a Minecraft Seed?
A seed is a randomly generated number that represents a specific world that has been created when you start a new game of Minecraft. This seed can be used by other players to play in the exact world you are playing in!
How-to Use Minecraft Seeds
Using Seeds in Minecraft is relatively simple, and the process is largely the same across all versions of the game. When you are creating a new world, look for the "More World Options..." area, or in some cases you'll just find a blank text box that you can paste your seed code into.
Once you find this box, paste the particular seed you want to load into it and you're done! The more complicated part, is that some seeds don't work for some versions of the game. For example, all positive seeds (numbers without a - at the beginning of them) are usable from Bedrock to Java. Furthermore, if you have a negative seed from Bedrock, you have to add 4294967296 to it for it to work in the Java version (Learn more here). Finally, negative Java seeds will NOT work in Bedrock at all. There will be irregularities between Bedrock and Java seeds, which can include differences in neutral temperature and ocean biomes.
If you've got an updated version of Minecraft on your mobile device or console (Nintendo Switch & Xbox One), then all Bedrock codes should work! PlayStation 4 is currently the main outlier (other than Java), so you will need codes that are specifically for the PlayStation.
What's the Best Seed in Minecraft?
There is no best seed for Minecraft! It's very subjective and based on how you want to play. If you want to play on a seed surrounded by water, then make sure to pick an Island Seed. If you want more variety, then make sure to select a seed that has a lot of biomes in a small area.
Minecraft Seeds List
Here's a list of some great seeds that should give you a fun starting point for your next world! I've listed what version of Minecraft they will work with. Bedrock works with the Windows 10, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and mobile versions! We'll be listing some coordinates for you to check out some key areas in some of the biomes. You can enable coordinates when you create a world (Bedrock), and either make your way over to the spot or use the /teleport command!

This is a great seed if you want some specific diversity really close by. You've got the beautiful Badlands on one side, a dark forest with dark oak forest, and then the Mushroom biome to the south. Mushroom biomes are highly sought after because hostile monsters will not spawn there. There's a pretty interesting Mineshaft broken up between the Badlands and forest biomes that you can explore. If you're looking for generated structures, there's ship wrecks to be found in the sea and an Ocean Monument. There's also three pretty large villages scattered around in different biomes!

This is a pretty cool mountain village with a farm inside of a cave and a monster spawner right next to it! In the mobile version of the game, you'll find a waterfall pouring onto some unfortunate villager's house! There's also a Zombie Village not too far away from this one, so that is a fun thing to check out.

Village Island (Java)

This is a really awesome seed because you literally spawn on a big island with a huge village attached to it! You can build yourself a couple of new Minecraft Houses that match up with the neighborhood! If you aren't enjoying the island life, you can go towards the desert that isn't too far away and find a desert temple and village! This isn't an ordinary village either, there's a cave right in the middle of it that you can explore and find a dungeon spawner. Not too far from here, you'll also find a forest with another very large village.
Here's a large map showing off some of the nearby locations you can check out (click to enlarge)! Do you find this useful? Let me know in the comments and I will make more for the other seeds!

If you're looking for an amazing mountain village to start your next Minecraft world then this is a great one to try! It is one of the more unique village arrangements I've ever seen, with many buildings being high up on a mountain. Not only that, there's an additional nearby village that has a Stronghold buried deeply beneath it! If you like diversity in your biomes, you start out near a pretty big swamp and if you explore around near the the Stronghold village you will find an Ice Spikes biome!

Tons of Stuff Near Spawn (Bedrock)

This seed features a lot of different things surrounding the spawn area that you'll be able to investigate. If you want to start a monster xp grinder, there's a spawner right next to spawn! Just head over to the forest area and you'll see some open area that heads down into a cave. Make your way down the natural path of the cave and you should run right into it. There's an additional spawner nearby this one, so you aren't going to be hurting for finding spots to farm monsters.
There's also multiple nearby ravines which nearly all have exposed diamond! These should be a lot of fun to explore and will get you started off on the right foot. There's a Desert Pyramid near a couple of these ravines, and further away is a good sized Desert Village. You'll even find a large Savannah Village, if that's more of what you are looking to utilize!

If you want to start off with enough diamond to craft a few important items, then this is a great one. There's a huge ravine right near spawn that has two diamond spawn locations that will set you up nicely for the rest of the game! Be careful though, these spots are at the bottom of the ravine, and you don't want to go falling off the edge. You've also got a village nearby, so there's a lot of great features in this seed.

Fire & Ice (Java Only)

This is a really interesting seed because you start off in the middle of two very distinct biomes. You've got the cold ocean biome which features a lot of frozen areas to explore, and on the other side is the badlands biome that is super pretty and interesting. Combine these two together and you've got the fire and ice seed! If you're looking to increase how awesome this seed looks, maybe check out some Minecraft Shaders?
- Underwater Ruins w/Drowned: X: -443, Z: -197
Icebergs & Frozen Islands (Java Only)
This is a great seed if you want some beautiful landscapes that are surrounded by icebergs. This will be a bit of a tough one to start out on, so if you're looking for a challenge then you'll love this frozen area with a lot to explore!
Varied Biomes (Bedrock & Java)
